Customer Q&A Ask a Question

Does this unit have a reset button?

What is the difference between the Carnival King DFC1800 and DFC4400 funnel cake fryers?
The 1800W Carnival King DFC1800 fryer is made for light duty, non-continuous use and is among the most powerful you can purchase with a standard plug. This gives you the flexibility to use it in a variety of locations, but does mean that it requires approximately 15 minutes to recover to full temperature in between uses.

The 4400W Carnival King DFC4400 funnel cake fryer has more than double the power, making it excellent for continuous use in higher volume applications. It requires little to no time to recover to full temp in between batches.

    I bought the Carnival King Donut Fryer before my shop opened. It was the best way for me to fry my donuts. It fits beautifully right next to the my stove and is separated by a stainless steel barrier. I've been using since 10/21/16 and has not given me a day of trouble. Easy to clean. Fries 12 of my donuts (pretty big) with no issues. Love them.

    DON'T BUY!!! I just used this carnival king fryer and it is the reason I decided to leave reviews on all the items I have purchased through webstaurant. The oil didn't even heat up to 300 degree!!!!!!!!!! The amount of oil your product will soak up in that amount of time to cook it through is a waste of time.
    Thank you for the review, Robert! We're sorry this is not working as it should be. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon.
    Do not buy! Im on my second one and it is now not working. Im not going to buy a third one. Each time something went wrong with heating element or thermostat. I tried fixing the first one (died after a year).. but could not get it to work again. Decided it was easier to just buy a new one... well its five months later and this one stopped working.. power light comes on but does not heat... 2 units died in 16 months... we are not making funnel cakes anymore because I refuse to buy a third one... Gezzus!
    Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry your Carnival King DFC4400 25 lb. Funnel Cake / Donut Fryer - 240V was defective. Corrective action has been taken and a Customer Solutions Representative will remain in contact with you about this. For a heavy duty funnel cake fryer we recommend this Paragon 9020 ParaFryer 4400 25 lb. Funnel Cake Fryer instead!
    All around great frier..Easy to use and move. Easy to drain oil and clean.Would recommend this funnel cake machine to all my friends and family
    I ordered 2 more of these to add to our growing collection of fryers for festivals and fairs. The grease heats up evenly. I make 2 large funnel cakes at a time or 6 mini cakes at a time. We use it fulltime while set up at the fairs/festivals and it has yet to let me down. The customer service from WebstaurantStore has been top notch. I've not had any problems with my orders or shipments.
    this is a great funnel cake fryer to add to your menu we did here at our ice-cream shop and they have been a hit if you need a funnel cake fryer this is the unit you need we also use it to fry churros
